Hire Adobe Illustrator Developers

Adobe Illustrator is a drawing and designing application that is used specifically for professional purposes. With this application, one can create drawings of small, simple designs to more complicated compositions with many elements. Many things can be designed using this application, such as posters, patterns, icons, symbols, logos, etc. The designing of several graphics using Adobe is done by the vectors present in it. Vector graphics are composition graphics that use curves, lines that are basic geometric characters. These types of graphics are resolution-independent, i.e., at any size, their clarity will not be compromised. That is why vector graphics are the best choice for creating any size and type of design.

The job of an Adobe Illustrator developer is to work on the existing system in improving its quality and working and customizing it according to the needs of his clients. A few skill sets one has to have to be an Adobe Illustrator developer are:

  • Basic coding and programming.
  • Knowledge involving graphic designing and special effects.
  • Teamwork
  • Time management

Adobe Illustrator goes hand in hand with Adobe Photoshop. This is a great application for creating material for social media platforms, marketing, presenting logos and whatnot. An expert, Adobe Illustrator developer, has a great scope in this field. The developer can work with a company or as a freelancer helping businesses to promote their brand most appealingly.

Adobe makes use of vector graphics which is why it is a very popular choice for many users. The images created in this application can be resized without the resolution quality being compromised. This is because the vector artwork makes use of mathematical relationships in describing curves and lines. The vector positions are related to one another by a mathematical formula. The advantage is that when the images are resized, the positions of these vectors are precisely recalculated for maintaining resolution. The vector graphics used here are very different from any other imaging software, for example, Photoshop.

Adobe Illustrator can store the created files in several formats such as PDF, SVG, EPS, VML, WMF. For example, work stored on PDF allows texts and images to display independent of the software and hardware. The whole work is stored precisely in pdf with each element in place. This is just one example; each format has its unique properties, and Adobe Illustrator allows its user to store in whichever format they wish to store their work in. Following are the other file formats that the created work can be saved in: -

  •  AutoCAD drawing (DWG)
  •  BMP (bmp)
  •  AutoCAD interchange (dxf)
  •  JPEG (jpg, jpe, jpeg)
  •  Flash (swf)
  •  Enhanced metafile (emf)
  •  PNG (png)
  •  Text format (TXT)
  •  Macintosh PICT (pct)
  •  TIFF (tif)

Apart from this, Adobe Illustrator can import files in several formats. Some of these are:

  • Adobe Illustrator (ai, ait)
  • AutoCAD Interchange File (dxf)
  • Adobe (fxg)
  • BMP (bmp, rle, dib)
  • AutoCAD Drawing (dwg)
  • Enhanced Metafile (emf)

  • Targa (tga, vda, icb, vst)
